Andres Ramirez '14 Launches New Collis Consulting Group

Article Type 

Andres Ramirez '14 was recently featured in an article by The Dartmouth about his new student-run organization, The Collis Consulting Group. The group aims to establish guidelines for executive transitions in student organizations and teach groups about available resources. Additionally, the group wants to assist student groups unfamiliar with administrative tasks, such as budgeting and sending proposals to the Council on Student Organizations.

This term, the group will offer assistance to a few select organizations before expanding in the spring by consulting groups upon request. Andres plans on recruiting students with professional experience in consulting, finance, non-profit organizations and event-planning, as well as those involved in student organizations on campus. Selected members will remain in the group until they graduate, adhering to a dynamic similar to COSO's. In the long term, Andres would like the group to become an “umbrella organization” by consulting for campus religious groups and Greek organizations. Ultimately, the group wants to consult for companies in Hanover and the surrounding area. 

“[Interim executives] do not have the same goals and the same initiatives as the prior execs did in the term before," Ramirez said in an interview with The Dartmouth. "A lot of the organizations don’t have the resources necessary to be the best that they can be or they are too intimidated to ask for help from their administrative faculty members. CCG will be the middle man between the administrators and the student groups.”

Andres has been heavily involved with the Rockefeller Center, taking part in Civic Skills Training, assisting in organizing the Republican Presidential Primary Debate, the Policy Research Shop and working as a Student Programs Assistant. He also interned with FEMA as a part of Rockefeller's Internships Program.
